(From 2001 Vintage) This is the first vintage of the Migration Pinot Noir, which comes from the Goldeneye Winery (part of the Duckhorn portfolio) located in the heart of the Anderson Valley. Rich, lush pinot with less new wood that its forbearer.
(From 2010 Vintage) This 100% Pinot Noir displays lovely complexity with a rich entry, balanced acidity, good length and substantial structure. On the palate, it showcases vibrant red fruit with enticing notes of cranberry and strawberry supported by layers of cola and spice. Savory elements of leather, tomato leaf and bacon fat add depth and nuance throughout.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesIf fairly substantial and showing a good sense of mass, this wine is never quite defined in fruit, and its bias to ripeness leaves it a bit heavy in feel. Somewhat stolid just now and slightly blunt at the end, it deserves twelve months of rest in the cellar to see how much it might evolve.
